    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    Story

    I spent more time trying to analyze what I love about OSC than listening to the actual story. I don't think I liked the switching around in perspective so much and some of the bits I had a little issue with.

    I did get into it and did listen to it clear through which is a good sign I am engaged, if some of that time my eyebrows were trying to connect in the middle.

    I think the painful childhood was a little too painful and hard to take. Also the character seemed like Ender Wiggen all over again at times, though not driven to safe the planet so much as save himself. (a worthy enough goal)

    It felt like the story was sort of patched together out of pieces and I think he came on at the end and affirmed this to be the case.

    OSC may be the best living author of fantasy fiction, there is a strong earthy flavor to his characters which never fails to impress - and probably keep my attention.
